  1. A landmark judgment by India’s highest court has overturned a colonial-era law that criminalizes consensual gay sex, in a long-fought for victory for the LGBTQ community. The five-judge bench reached a unanimous decision Thursday in the capital New Delhi. Delivering his decision, Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra said, “The LGBTQ community has the same fundamental rights as citizens. The identity of a person is very important and we have to vanquish prejudice, embrace inclusion and ensure equal rights.” “Intimacy and privacy is a matter of choice. We have to bid adieu to stereotypes and prejudices,” he said. Source
  2. NEW DELHI — India’s Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously struck down one of the world’s oldest bans on consensual gay sex, a groundbreaking victory for gay rights that buried one of the most glaring vestiges of India’s colonial past. After weeks of deliberation by the court and decades of struggle by gay Indians, Chief Justice Dipak Misra said the law was “irrational, indefensible and manifestly arbitrary.” News of the decision instantly shot around India. On the steps of an iconic courthouse in Bangalore, people danced, kissed and hugged tightly, eyes closed. In Mumbai, India’s pulsating commercial capital, human rights activists showered themselves in a blizzard of confetti. The justices eagerly went further than simply decriminalizing gay sex. From now on, they ruled, gays are to be accorded all the protections of the Indian Constitution. “This ruling is hugely significant,” said Meenakshi Ganguly, the South Asia director for Human Rights Watch. With restrictions on gay rights toppling in country after country, the ruling in India, the world’s second-most-populous nation, may encourage still more nations to act, she said. Still, however historic the ruling of the court, considered a liberal counterweight to the conservative politics sweeping India, gay people here know that their landscape remains treacherous. Changing a law is one thing — changing deeply held mind-sets another. And few suggested that other major victories, like same-sex marriage, were on the near horizon. New York Times
  3. The Miseducation of Cameron Post takes place that same year, and features a sweetly rousing scene in which Chloë Grace Moretz — as the titular Cameron — conducts an impassioned sing-along to that same song. At the time, she's standing in the kitchen of God's Promise — the "conversion therapy" camp in remote Montana where she has been interned, along with a bunch of other queer teens. They're peeling potatoes when What's Up? comes on the radio, inspiring Cameron's hammy impersonation of Perry: "And I try, oh my god do I try / I try all the time, in this institution," she croons to her fellow campers, flicking potato skins left and right. "And I pray, oh my god do I pray / I pray every single day for a revolution." The generic lyrics take on a new, bitterly ironic meaning when sung by Cameron — stuck at God's Promise, accused of the sin of "same-sex attraction", and told that she must work to "get better". Winner of the Sundance Grand Jury prize (the festival's highest honour), The Miseducation of Cameron Post is director Desiree Akhavan's second feature. Her debut, 2014's Appropriate Behaviour, was a candid and low-key comedy about a bisexual Iranian-American woman living in Brooklyn. Akhavan also wrote and starred in the semi-autobiographical film, which earned high praise as well as the inevitable comparisons to Girls. With Cameron Post, which is based on Emily M. Danforth's 2012 novel, Akhavan has delivered another smart, sensitive film about a queer protagonist — although one best suited to a slightly younger audience than Appropriate Behaviour. The film is bolstered by assured, nuanced performances — particularly Sasha Lane (American Honey) and Forrest Goodluck (The Revenant) as the tough Jane and the soft-spoken Adam, who help Cameron adjust to life at God's Promise. Friendship becomes a coping mechanism for the three of them, along with sarcasm and weed. In terms of its set-up, Cameron Post is just about identical to Jamie Babbit's But I'm a Cheerleader (1999). Both films follow a teenage girl who is sent to Christian conversion camp in order to be "cured" of her homosexual tendencies. Tonally, however, the two films are worlds apart. Babbit went for hyper-stylised, kitschy satire, her tongue planted firmly in cheek. The program at her fictional camp True Directions consists of girls in bubblegum pink uniforms putting diapers on baby dolls, while boys in electric blue practice chopping wood. An out-of-drag RuPaul is the supposedly "ex-gay" counsellor, while John Waters alumnus Mink Stole plays the strict, platinum blonde matron. Clearly, in Babbit's vision of gay conversion camp, the emphasis is firmly on the camp. Akhavan has an altogether more naturalistic sensibility. Although Cameron Post is infused with her trademark dry humour, the approach to the material here is essentially earnest — a little too earnest, at times. Perhaps that's for the best, given the apparent earnestness of those who continue to advocate for conversion therapy. And yet, the practice is so outrageously misguided that it seems to call out for lampooning — to be treated with the kind of irreverence that underpins Babbit's film. In the past couple of years, a handful of queer coming-of-age stories have received mainstream attention — from the much-lauded Moonlight and Call Me By Your Name to Hollywood's first gay teen rom-com, Love, Simon. The increased visibility of queer stories, made with empathy, can only be a good thing — and The Miseducation of Cameron Post continues this heartening trend with grace. Those looking for a sillier and ultimately more subversive take on conversion therapy, however, might turn to But I'm a Cheerleader instead. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-09-07/the-miseducation-of-cameron-post-review/10195270

  5. The model-turned-actor's nude shoot was published in a photography book called Sombra A fully nude image of Channing Tatum has been unearthed showing the model-turned-actor in all his glory. Tatum – best known for stripping in the movie Magic Mike – is undeniably one of the hottest men of TV and just a nice guy in general and is never afraid to embrace his drag side, you all must remember the iconic Frozen lip-sync battle! And now, in a new coffee table photography book called Sombra, by Ruven Afanador, Tatum is captured wearing just a trilby hat… on his head and nothing else and yes it is definitely worth seeing. Tatum, who has a daughter with ex-wife Jenna Dewan Tatum, isn’t shy of taking off his clothes and why would you be with a body like his? In honour of his full frontal, here are some of his hottest moments – plus the nude picture. You are welcome! NSFW
  6. Apple CEO Tim Cook dropped by Utah’s LoveLoud Festival this weekend, delivering a short but heartfelt speech urging LGBTQ youth to “find, speak and live” their truth. Introducing himself as “an uncle, a sports nut, a CEO, a lover of the beautiful Utah outdoors and a proud gay American,” Cook took the stage Saturday at the University of Utah’s Rice-Eccles Stadium to introduce one of the evening’s headlining acts, Imagine Dragons.“ I’ve come to deliver a simple message that I want every LGBTQ person to hear and believe,” the 57-year-old told the crowd of more than 30,000, as seen in the video above. “You are a gift to the world, a unique and special gift just the way you are. Your life matters.” “My heart breaks when I see kids struggling to conform to a society or family that doesn’t accept them, struggling to be what someone else thinks is normal,” he went on. “‘Normal’ just might be the worst word ever created.” Cook publicly came out as gay in a 2014 Bloomberg Businessweek essay, joking that his sexuality had given him “the skin of a rhinoceros, which comes in handy when you’re the CEO of Apple.” “Being gay has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to be in the minority and provided a window into the challenges that people in other minority groups deal with every day,” he wrote at the time. “It’s been tough and uncomfortable at times, but it has given me the confidence to be myself, to follow my own path, and to rise above adversity and bigotry.” Cook’s inclusive remarks on Saturday were particularly fitting given the LoveLoud Festival’s aims. Conceived by Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds, the daylong event benefits LGBTQ advocacy groups, including Encircle and the Trevor Project. In addition to Imagine Dragons, this year’s event featured performances by Zedd, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees. The festival reportedly raised over $1 million. “Music speaks to people in a way that breaks down boundaries that words and actions sometimes can’t,” Reynolds, who was raised in the Mormon church, told HuffPost of his vision for the 2018 festival. “Especially in today’s climate, it’s more important than ever for musicians to speak up... If you’re not doing anything, well, then you don’t deserve to be where you are.” https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5b61c31be4b0de86f49cf077

  8. A group of lesbian activists blocked the start of the Pride in London march today (7 July) in protest against transgender women. A group of eight women stormed the parade route without accreditation. Then five of them laid down on the road in front of the parade and draped a banner over them. The banner read: ‘Transactivism erases lesbians’. They then blocked the parade route for about 10 minutes. One of the activists shouted out: ‘A man who says he’s a lesbian is a rapist’ The group also had a banner that said ‘Lesbian = female homosexual’, as well as flyers with the organization ‘Get the L out’ as the headline. The flyer states: ‘The trans movement is… coercing lesbians to have sex with men. We firmly condemn this vicious form of anti-lesbianism disguised as progress.’ https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/lesbian-activists-protest-against-trans-women-pride-london/#gs.kaVbLhg
  9. world is shook no one could ever see this coming Brendon Urie is defining his sexuality. In a new interview with Paper magazine, the Panic! at the Disco frontman came out as "pansexual". “I’m married to a woman and I’m very much in love with her, but I’m not opposed to a man because to me, I like a person. Yeah, I guess you could qualify me as "pansexual" because I really don’t care,” Urie, 31, told the magazine. “If a person is great, then a person is great. I just like good people, if your heart’s in the right place. I’m definitely attracted to men. It’s just people that I am attracted to,” he added. This isn’t the first time Urie — who married wife Sarah in 2013 — has talked about being "pansexual", another term for being bisexual or fluid. In a 2017 interview, the alt-rocker spoke to PEOPLE about being open about his sexual fluidity. https://people.com/music/brendon-urie-comes-out-pansexual-attracted-to-men/?utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=peoplemag&utm_source=facebook.com&xid=socialflow_facebook_peoplemag
  10. Children raised by gay and lesbian parents develop as well psychologically as those brought up by heterosexual couples, a study suggests. Psychologists based in Italy said their findings add to growing scientific evidence that indicates having same-sex parents does not disadvantage a child as those who disagree with such family arrangements might assume. The team at Sapienza University of Rome enlisted three groups of Italian parents for their study. The participants were comprised of 70 gay fathers who had their children through a surrogate; 125 lesbian mothers who were inseminated with donor sperm; and 195 heterosexual couples who had a child together without medical intervention. The children involved in the paper published in The Physiological Society were between 3 and 11 years old. The researchers asked the parents to complete online questionnaires on factors including their ability to parent successfully, how well they adjusted to parenthood, and how well their family functioned. Their child’s psychological adjustment, or the strengths and difficulties they face, were also documented. The resulting data indicated there are no major differences in the answers across the groups and the scores were considered normal. In fact, the children of same-sex parents had fewer problems than children with different-sex parents. And the researchers said some of the measures used to test how well a family functions produced better results among same-sex parents, especially gay fathers. https://www.google.com/amp/www.newsweek.com/children-raised-gay-and-lesbian-parents-develop-well-kids-heterosexual-1001515%3famp=1
  11. Mexico were last night facing punishment for their fans’ homophobic chanting during their World Cup victory over Germany. Fifa opened disciplinary proceedings against the Mexican Football Federationafter thousands of the country’s supporters repeatedly yelled “puto” - the Spanish word for a male prostitute - during Sunday’s game at the Luzhniki Stadium. The chanting - seemingly directed primarily at Manuel Neuer - was filmed by the governing body’s independent anti-discrimination observers and reported to those responsible for policing bigotry in the stadium. The abuse was the first major test at the World Cup of Fifa’s so-called ‘three-step process’ for dealing with bigotry from the stands. The first step involves the referee stopping the game so a warning can be issued over the public address, which, if ignored, is then escalated to the match being suspended and eventually abandoned. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.telegraph.co.uk/world-cup/2018/06/18/fifa-launch-investigation-homophobic-chants-mexico-fans-world/amp/
  12. “It just feels better,” says Lucas, a gay New Yorker who’s abandoned condoms since going on PrEP, even after experiencing multiple bouts of gonorrhea and chlamydia. PrEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis, is a pharmaceutical regimen consisting of a daily pill called Truvada that reduces the risk of acquiring HIV by nearly 100%. Rates of condom use have been declining for several years and the increasingly widespread adoption of PrEP may be accelerating that trend. “I can’t stay hard for that long with a condom and I can almost never cum with one on,” Lucas continues. “I take PReP and almost always only fuck raw with other people who are also on PreP, so I basically can’t get HIV. Gonorrhea and chlamydia can happen, but you just have to take a pill or get a quick shot and they’re gone.” Indeed, antibiotics are a powerful defense against many STIs, but in late March, the United Kingdom reported its first case of antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea. Will the gay community be prepared to defend itself if and when this super gonorrhea strikes the U.S.? “We are concerned,” says Dr. Ellie Carmody, M.D., an infectious disease specialist and assistant professor of medicine at NYU Langone Health. “Increased rates of international travel clearly raise the likelihood that antibiotic-resistant infections will become intercontinental, as well. Without barrier protection, one very much increases one’s chances of acquiring gonorrhea.” If untreated, long-term gonorrhea can cause genital swelling, infertility, and if it spreads to the bloodstream, arthritis, dermatitis, and possibly death. more http://www.newnownext.com/prep-sex-gay-super-gonorrhea/06/2018/?xrs=synd_twitter_logo
  13. EU countries that have not legalised gay marriage must still offer same sex spouses the same residency rights as heterosexual couples under Brussels’ freedom of movement laws, the European Court of Justice has ruled. The judgement comes after an American man, Clai Hamilton, was denied residency in Romania with Adrian Coman, his Romanian husband, because gay marriage is illegal in that country. Instead he would only be allowed to stay in Romania for three months. “Romanian citizens cannot be divided into good and gay. We can no longer be treated as inferior citizens without equal rights on the basis of the prejudices that some people have about homosexuality," Mr Coman said. 🌈 In 2012, they asked for residency permits for Mr Hamilton to live and work permanently in Romania but were turned down. The Romanian authorities said that Mr Hamilton could not be classified as a “spouse” because the country does not recognise same sex marriage. The couple, who have remained in the US because of the decision, challenged the ruling in the Romanian courts. Romanian judges referred the case to the European Court of Justice to clarify if EU law applied to same sex spouses. The Romanian courts will now make a final decision but must take the EU judgment into account. A European Commission spokesman said in Brussels after the judgment: "All member states have the freedom to decide whether or not to offer same sex marriage but may not discriminate on the grounds they are in a same sex marriage."
